Vermont Foundation of Recovery


Our vision is that every Vermonter struggling with Substance Use Disorder has ready access to a full spectrum of recovery supports and services.  VFOR envisions a future in which it will be able to connect individuals suffering from Substance Use Disorder with services which shepherd them from detoxification, to inpatient treatment, to outpatient counseling, to sober living and employment, and ultimately, to stable sobriety and independent living as valued and productive members of their communities.  We envision that these services will be available to anyone who needs them, and that they will be available locally and without delay.

“What I needed was a place that let me have the freedom to work, make friends, and learn how to be sober and enjoy life while also holding me responsible. I was expected to build a relationship with a sponsor, get and hold a job, and attend meetings. I have started to acquire the skills needed to deal with life without having to turn to a drink or a drug. The VFOR program has taught me how to balance an active, fulfilling life with sobriety.”
